I joined Orange Fitness Theory as a founding member in May this year. Since then this high intensity workout has become one of my workout obsessions!

I was sitting at my desk one day working on a complicated motion, when a Facebook notification on my phone blinked at me. A friend of mine had posted on my wall.
